A genuine and original Taiping Houkui from Huogang, produced using the traditional method. Second of three produced qualities. A (successful) attempt to recreate the Tea from the World Exhibition of 1915, hence the name. Very carefully and consciously crafted from old tea-bushes of different types of the Shidacha. The leaves are smaller and less heavily pressed, one can recognise the leaves and the buds more distinctly. The taste is very different to the modern version of this tea.

Tai Ping Hou Kui, Ape King from the Taiping Lake, is a very beautifully crafted flat form tea (Bianxingcha) with very large leaves that were hammered into shape. They are considered to be one of the classic Chinese green teas, although the first mention of them appears only after 1900, when the improved techniques made more beautiful and better qualities possible. The very long leaves of the Shidacha variety are fired in the wok and carefully pressed by hand and hammered. Nowadays, they are also produced by machine, resulting in very flat and long, light green leaves.
A subtle beauty: it reminds of elderflowers, it's soft, citric and fresh, mineral and quite incredible.
